The following are dates for Community Quilts Workshops:
Thursday February 22 and Friday 23 – 9:30am to 4:30pm
Saturday February 24 – 9:30am to 3:00pm
The location for the workshops is:
St Andrews & St Stephens Church 2641 Chesterfield (same place where we meet each month.)
The holidays are over, the decorations packed away for another year, so it’s time to get together to make quilts for the community.
The gym will be setup with tables, chairs, ironing boards, cutting mats, rulers, rotary cutters, batting and tables heaped with fabric.
If you don’t want to bring your sewing machine there will be lots of other things to do. You can iron fabric, cut fabric for a kit, layer quilts, sew on labels, sew on bindings, help out in the kitchen and much more. You can stay for the day or a few hours. As we all know there are many stages to building a quilt, so even a few hours of your time will help us get there!
There will be coffee, tea and goodies for your refreshments. On Thursday bring a bagged lunch.
On Friday and Saturday we will be ordering sandwiches from The Galleria in Edgemont Village. Please note you must place your order by 10:15 each day. All orders must be prepaid so please bring cash. Price TBA
The workshop is a great way to meet other members, share ideas, share a laugh or two and feel good about contributing to those that are ill, infirmed or down on their luck.
As always we need help with transporting the supplies to and from the locker and with setting up the room. If you can help please let Karen or myself know as soon as possible. Your strong spouse, children or friends are welcome to help.
We look forward to your participation and please remember this is a Fragrance Free Event.
